Enoch pt. 1 “The Ethiopic Book of Enoch”

Adam stood up… and predicted whatsoever should befall his posterity unto the latest generation. These things were all written in the Book of Enoch and are to be testified of in due time.

D&C 107:56-57

I have recently read through the Book of Enoch, which is the book I believe the Lord was referring to in Section 107.

I want to share some of the things I learned while reading it.

The first Book of Enoch (or 1 Enoch) has been in the Ethiopic Christian Church since 330 AD, maybe even before that.

I believe that the Ethiopic Christian Church spawned off the true church of God, which was in existence for hundreds of years after Christ’ ascension to heaven— contrary to popular Mormon belief that the apostasy occurred immediately after New Testament times—

The writers of the New Testament even quote passages from the Book of Enoch. It’s the real deal.

Prepare to have your minds blown.

The text has this to say about itself: “it [is] not for this generation to know, but for a remote one which is to come.” 1:2

The generation which is to know the things of The Book of Enoch is this one. However, I don’t think READING the text is what Enoch means. It’s KNOWING the things that the Book of Enoch contains.

The canonized scriptures we have are already more than sufficient enough.

The Book of Enoch is a prophecy of the last days. Understanding the prophecies pertaining to the end-times is something only few understand. A remote generation shall know them.

The text talks about the gathering and the rapture.

The remote generation will understand and believe in the gathering and the rapture. Whether or not they have read the Book of Enoch is irrelevant. Reading the text is nonetheless a worthy endeavor.

It proves many of my controversial beliefs.

My belief that Satan’s angels come and receive bodies is in there.

Scholars have read the text and believe that the angels do not take bodies, but simply come to the earth in their angelic form and have sex with women.

That…. would contradict the Bible and the JST.

One scripture solves the apparent contradiction. Speaking of these angels of heaven that have had sex with the daughters of men, creating demonic children, the Lord says, “they have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of their rising, because they did not come out at their proper times.18:15

The angels decided to come to the earth earlier than they were supposed to! They did this because they lusted after women which were not designated for them.

This is extremely fascinating to me.

The text also speaks of secret combinations and oaths between Satanic individuals. It talks about how technology was devised by Satan to bring about war.

I highly recommend reading the whole thing.

For right now, I want to show how Enoch prophesied of Joseph Smith and the restoration, the same things that Adam would prophecy of: the things that would befall his posterity down to the last generation. (D&C 107)

Enoch talks about a seven week time period that spans all mankind. It is similar to the seven seals.

I believe the events of each week correspond with all of my writings.

I am now providing excerpts which are all contained in 1 Enoch 93:

Enoch says, “I was born in the end of the first week [where] able judgment and righteousness still endured. And after me there shall arise in the second week great wickedness, and deceit shall have sprung up; and in it there shall be the first end.”

The first end is clearly the flood.

And in it a man shall be saved.”

Noah.

And after [the second week] is ended, unrighteousness shall grow up, and a law shall be made for the sinners.”

Law of Moses.

And after that in the third week, at its close a man shall be elected as the plant of righteous judgment, and his posterity shall become the plant of righteousness forever more.”

Jesus Christ is the plant, and his posterity are his followers.

And after that, in the fourth week, at its close, visions of the holy and the righteous shall be seen, and a law for all generations.”

This is referring to the visions that the prophets Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon saw. The law for all generations is the law of the gospel, Section 42, which contains the law of consecration and the law of monogamy.

And after that, in the fifth week, at its close, the house of glory and dominion shall be built forever.”

The Kirtland House/Temple!

And after that in the sixth week, all who live shall be blinded… and the whole race of the chosen shall be dispersed.”

This is exactly what I’ve been saying: EVERYONE that is alive has been blinded. They are either blind to the truth of Jesus Christ, or they blindly continue sinning.

Even though Joseph Smith came and built the temple to gather Israel, the whole thing fell apart and the chosen ones have been dispersed throughout the earth!!!!!!!!!

And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise.”

This is the apostasy of the LDS church, which occurred in 1835. Without the fulness of the priesthood, the church could not redeem Zion, and began apostate practices such as polygamy. However, there is good news:

And at its end [it] shall be elected, the elect righteous of the eternal plant of righteousness shall be chosen to receive sevenfold instruction.”

The wheat will be elected to receive further instruction…

Compare that to what Joseph Smith said, “It is not necessary that God should give us all things in His first commission to us, but in His second. John saw the angel deliver the Gospel in the last days. The small lights that God has given are sufficient to lead us out of Babylon; when we get out, we shall have the greater light.” (TPJS 104)

The LDS church was given the first commission. At the end of the seventh week, we will be gathered out of Babylon, and then receive sevenfold instruction for the second commission.

  1. Great review!

    Some great observations.

    “And after that in the third week, at its close a man shall be elected as the plant of righteous judgment, and his posterity shall become the plant of righteousness forever more.”

    Seems like that could be referring to Abraham or Jacob whose posterity became the Lord’s people

  2. Here are a couple more suggestions for the timeline:
    “And after that, in the fourth week, at its close, visions of the holy and the righteous shall be seen, and a law for all generations.”
    “And after that, in the fifth week, at its close, the house of glory and dominion shall be built forever.”
    “And after that in the sixth week, all who live shall be blinded… and the whole race of the chosen shall be dispersed.”
    “And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise.”

    You have these events too close together. You identify the end of the 4th week with a revelation given in 1831 and the 7th week with apostasy beginning in 1835.

    The 4th week description might refer to the vision of John the Revelator, and the law for all generations might be to love God with all your heart, might, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. Consecration and monogamy are just two manifestations of how this law plays out in practice.
    The “house of glory and dominion” might refer more to a people than a place. We can see from the work of the reformers and even religious trends today that God is leading people to build on the rock of Christ and revelation, rather than putting their faith in organized religion or political institutions.
    That would put us at the sixth week for the latter day apostasy, and we know that at the end of the millennium there will again be an apostate generation.

  3. The interpretation of the seven weeks or seven seals. Each week represent 1000 years. In the sixth week when every one is blinded refers to the Dark Ages, when the sun became as black as sackcloth of hair. Revelation uses the opening of the sixth seal to describe this. Joseph Smith did not come until the end or the sixth week or seal. Revelation 12 describes the woman or church being driven into the wilderness because the Quorum of 12 changed the revelation on tithing.

    According to D&C 103, the allegory says they would retain the priesthood, but not the voice of the Lord. All they had was the Holy Ghost. The redemption of Zion was delayed in verse 18 to Brigham Young. The last line said, “No More at present, Amen and Amen.

    The correct translation is “After that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise.” We are now in the opening of this seventh week or seal. When it was opened, there was silence in heaven. Silence means no economic living according the order of Enoch. This is the kingdom of heaven at hand, which we do not have.

    Joseph knew that the redemption of Zion would come later. Enoch does not tell us when but Danial does. There is not end of the seventh week. The redemption of Zion will be between 2041-2051.
    You have to consider all prophecy and not just one record. I will comment on other items later.
